SaintCast #111, St. Stephen's Day, klling the wren, Stephen's tomb, Way of St. Vincent, audio feedback +1.312.235.2278
Have you killed the wren today? How about bleeding your horse? These are traditions around the world celebrated in honor of the Feast of St. Stephen, the Church's first martyr, celebrated on the day after Christmas. You've heard of the Way of St. James, how about the Way of St. Vincent? Our only source about the life of St. Stephen is from St. Luke in the Acts of the Apostles. However, we learn of the whereabouts of his tomb from an apocryphal work of the 6th century.

SaintCast #110, "I am the Immaculate Conception," soundseeing at the grotto at Lourdes, audio feedback +1.312.235.2278
150 years ago, a 14 year old girl saw another 'girl' in the niche of a grotto along the River Gave. She said she was 'the Immaculate Conception.' Today Paul takes you there to experience the 'sights' and sounds of the sanctuary at Lourdes. Come experience a visit to the Grotto at Massabielle, visit the tiny Cachot where she lived in a one room former prison with her family, and hear the candlelight procession of thousands. There's still time to respond with the answer to the question of which relics are in your church's altar. . and win some SaintCast swag.
